Charlotte, founder of stylish celebration webstore, Carousel, turns the clock back to a reimagined childhood...
Carousel: Chic party accessories
If you were five years old again, what is the first thing you would do?
If I were five again, with not a care in the world, I’d probably turn the music up and have a good dance!
What advice would you give your five-year-old self?
What rules would you stick to?
Well, I’d always brush my teeth...
What rules would you break?
...but other than that I’d break every rule!
If you could, would you do anything to change your character?
No - I’m happy with myself. Of course you don’t always feel that when you’re a child, but there has to be some advantages to growing up!
Would you play more or try to learn harder?
I’d say yes to everything.... I’d play harder and learn harder.
Knowing what you know now, what would you want to be when you grew up?
I’d want to work somewhere beautiful, full of colour and imagination.
What would you do for fun and hobbies?
I’d learn to take on the boys: to beat them at football and pool!
What pearls of wisdom would you pass on to your five-year-old friends?
I would tell them how many exciting adventures they would be going on. I would also tell them to be kind, have fun and share with friends.
How would you dress yourself?
I’d wear dungarees with a tutu over the top, my hair would be long and messy and full of daisy chains.
What would you ask to have for a slap up dinner?
Ice cream - because some things never change. I’d have all the sprinkles and sauces I could get away with.
What would you insist upon doing, if you knew you only had one day to spend being aged five before returning to adulthood?
First, I’d empty my piggy bank and head to the toy shop and the pick- and-mix counter. Then I’d enjoy being with my family whatever we did together, watching a movie or visiting the funfair.
